Learning Ability / Disability Testing

This type of testing is a formal method for evaluating intelligence, and an individual’s ability to perceive, process, and express information. We offer psychological testing to help your child with placement in school as well as to help identify any learning difficulties that may be preventing a student from reaching their fullest potential. Additionally we offer testing to assess for Giftedness and Learning Disabilities. All such assessments and testing batteries generally culminate in the completion of a written report that provides test results, interpretation of results, a diagnosis, treatment recommendations, and effective interventions. At The Practice LA we are able to provide this type of testing in several languages, including: English, Spanish, Armenian, Farsi, and Italian.

By learning more about learning disabilities in general, and your child’s learning difficulties in particular, you can begin to advocate for your child, and help pave the way for success at school and beyond.
